Dear Gossips,

The Amy Robach hot mic leak yesterday kept Prince Andrew’s friendship with the dead rapist pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in the headlines. For almost six months now, Andrew has remained in the headlines  because of his association with the Registered Sex Offender who died under mysterious circumstances and not because of any of the work he does. You’d think that would be the top royal story, considering all the elements, like billionaires and private jets and sex trafficking and favours exchanged but, no, Andrew’s always number two or three, as usual, the story of his life, which in a way only adds insult to injury. Even when he breaks through with a crazy ass scandal, he’s still not ever the topline royal.  

Not that he wants to be a heatscore right now, of course not, not for this. And still, if you consider how much time he spent enjoying the spoils of his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, the dead rapist pedophile, what he’s currently going through is, at most, a season. Also, there’s still hope that his nephews and their wives can push him further back in the pages of the papers. As many have been speculating, especially now that they’ve heard Robach leak, those vipers at the palace will do the most to protect the Queen’s beloved second son, sometimes even at the expense of other royals. 

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, then, must be such a pain in the ass for them. She did an interview with 60 Minutes Australia that will air this weekend about her experience with Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew. In advance footage from the interview, she walks by Epstein’s New York mansion where she says she was made to perform sex acts with billionaires and other dignitaries. That would be the same mansion where Prince Andrew, born to the most aristocratic family in the United Kingdom, was seen answering the f-cking door, as a parade of girls was seen coming and going. This is also where Andrew was seen receiving foot massages alongside Epstein administered by Russian girls. And where Epstein hosted a party for Andrew attended by influential New York media and celebrities – all of this after Epstein served a prison sentence for solicitation of underage prostitution. 

Virginia tells 60 Minutes Australia that, “Prince Andrew should go to jail. I mean, is he ever going to? Probably not”. 

She then pulls out the photo of her with Prince Andrew and his arm around her while Epstein’s alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell preens nearby that was, according to her, taken the night she was sex trafficked to the prince in the bathroom. “This is a real photo. That is Andrew.”

And when asked about Andrew’s denials and his attempts to challenge the authenticity of the photo, Virginia says, with exasperation and amusement, because it’s a pathetic, “Oh the chubby fingers, I know”. 

We all know. We know that Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, has put himself in a position where he has to point to the size of his phalanges to defend himself. What’s next? A foot fetish? 

Yours in gossip,
